Original Car

Custom Carbon Fiber Mustang GT Intake

This 2010 GT Mustang is clean in white, but it just needed some carbon fiber under its hood!

Plug Layout

Using the car as a model, we were able to layout the new air intake design to match the throttle body and the air filter.

Final Plug

High Density Foam Custom Carbon Fiber Mustang GT Intake

This is the final result of the hand shaped, custom plug. It’s easy to test fit the plug in place as the carbon part will only be slightly larger.

The Lay-Up

The layup was performed as a simple wet wrap around the foam plug. The seam was carefully placed on the underside.
